Dead tree

After my brief respite, I resumed this Friday walk. My eye was caught by the scene of a dead tree surrounded by birds, both pigeons and little brown sparrows. They swarmed the stump, pecking at the dirt all around it. As to be expected, I approached and they all left in a flurry. The ground was moist and the dirt dark and thick.
